Abstract

Quadrature is the term for the numerical evaluation of integrals.  It's a beautiful subject because it's so accessible, yet full of conceptual surprises and challenges.  This talk will review ten of these, with plenty of history and numerical demonstrations.  Some are old if not well known, some are new, and two are subjects of my current research.
